Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette.

Regulation 5 of the principal regulations prohibits a person other than a certified herd tester from undertaking regulated herd testing. New subclause (5) (added by clause 3 of these regulations) is an exception to that and permits a person other than a certified herd tester to undertake herd testing for the purpose of research only. However, if the herd tested for the purpose of research does not belong to the researcher, the researcher must ensure that the herd is also tested by a certified herd tester in the same season as the research testing.
